Critical Habitat Factsheets: Saskatchewan

Critical Habitat Identification: Boreal Shield Range (SK1)

A schedule of studies is required under SARA where available information is inadequate to identify critical habitat. The schedule of studies outlines the essential studies required to identify the critical habitat necessary to meet the population and distribution objectives for boreal caribou set in this recovery strategy.

There is evidence suggesting that fire does cause stress on boreal caribou populations when the proportion of the range disturbed by fire is high and precaution around the additional effects of anthropogenic disturbance in boreal caribou ranges with high fire is necessary. However, additional population trend data is required to understand the relationship between disturbance and boreal caribou survival in ranges with high fire and very low anthropogenic disturbances. This disturbance relationship occurs in northern Saskatchewan’s Boreal Shield range (SK1).

The following schedule of studies is required to complete the identification of critical habitat in the Boreal Shield Range in northern Saskatchewan.

Table J-1: Schedule of studies required to complete the identification of critical habitat in the Boreal Shield range (SK1) in northern Saskatchewan
Description of ActivityRationaleTimeline
Collect population information (size, trend, etc.) for a minimum of 2 years in SK1 where population condition is unknown.The effect of a high fire and very low anthropogenic disturbance habitat condition on the SK1 local population is unknown. These activities will provide the necessary information to identify critical habitat.Population data collected and critical habitat identified for SK1 by end of 2016.
Update disturbance model in Environment Canada's Scientific Assessment (2011b) by including population information for SK1 to incorporate situations of high fire and very low anthropogenic disturbance.
